Macrame is a great craft to learn, especially in the summer if you love the boho vibes. This macrame vase/jar cover is a versatile project that can be used to upcycle a vase or jar. You can colour the macrame’s fringe to bring a pop of colour to your home or garden decor. You can use your macrame vase/jar cover to hold wildflower bouquets or as a tea light holder during the outdoor summer evenings.

Upcycled jar size: 10cm dia x 15cm height
Cut a 1 x 70cm string, wrap it around the neck of the jar and make a knot (not too tight
as you will have to undo it later)

Cut a 1 x 70cm string, secure one end with masking tape. We call this string the ‘guide
Holding the guide string on your right hand, tie your pairs of strings on it, using the
Double Half Hitch knot. Make sure you keep your guide string as straight as possible.
Starting from one end, you will be working with the first 8 pairs of strings. Take pair of
string #4 as a guide string and tie a diagonal of 3 Double Half Hitch Knots from right to
left. Repeat with the other 4 pairs of strings, going the opposite way.
Take the 4 pair of strings in the middle and make a Square Knot.
Close the diamond. Take string #1 as a guide and tie a diagonal of 3 Double Half Hitch
Knots from left to right. Repeat with the other 4 pairs of strings, going the opposite way.
Repeat STEPS 6-7 with the remaining strings, working on sets of 8 pairs of strings. You
will end up with 8 diamonds.
Take 4 pairs of strings from one diamond and 4 pairs of strings from the diamond next to
it. Use the middle 6 pairs of strings as fillers and the first and last pair of strings as
working strings and make a Square Knot.
